Kolo Mee

In its most traditional form, kolo mee consists of springy yellow egg noodles tossed in a light, aromatic sauce and topped with minced meat (usually pork) and slices of char siew (barbecued pork). The noodles are then garnished with fresh spring onions to give it an extra depth of flavor with every bite. Some hawker stalls also pair kolo mee with a bowl of hearty broth containing pork slices and innards (known as zheng by the locals).


Sarawak Laksa

Sarawak laksa is another delicacy that will set your palette alight. Unlike Penang’s asam laksa, Sarawak laksa features a shrimp-based broth that is less tangy. Made with a mixture of sambal belacan, sour tamarind, lemongrass, and other herbs and spices, the aromatic broth is enriched and thickened with coconut milk to give it a savory aftertaste. As for what goes into the slurpy broth (and your bowl), expect bee hoon (vermicelli rice noodles), juicy shrimp, a generous amount of bean sprouts, shredded omelet, and chicken slices. For garnish, a dash of fresh mint and a wedge of lime (remember to squeeze it before eating!) bring it all together.


Kampua Mee

Originating in Sibu, kampua mee is a delicacy of the Foochow community. It uses similar ingredients to that of kolo mee, but rather than a light sauce, the springy noodles are tossed in shallot oil and soy sauce, which gives it a slightly saltier flavor. It is also slightly drier compared to kolo mee and often enhanced with a sweet chili sauce to complement the simplicity of the dish. Another subtle difference is that while kolo mee is often served in a bowl, Kampua Mee is served on a plate.

Kueh Chap

In Hokkien, kueh refers to a unique kind of flat rice noodles whereas chap refers to a mixture of ingredients. This hearty dish consists of flat rice noodles in a rich, herbal-based broth containing various pieces of pork, including stomach, intestine and skin. While the mixture may seem weird and a little off-putting to some, one sip of the flavorful broth is all you need to fall in love with this rustic delicacy.
